How much of a photography legacy will you leave when you’re gone?
Is it easily accessible to your family and friends, and others how might be interested in your work?
Or is it locked up and secure, with no-one but you having a key?
Before you say (as I might) “It doesn’t matter, who would possibly be interested in my pictures?”, think about the different reasons they might hold a curiosity.
It might be for personal, sentimental reasons, because they’re in the photo, or know the people who are.
It might be for historical interest as your photo features a place that now looks very different.
It might be for an artistic reason, ie they love the topic and composition and qualities you captured in the photograph.
Surely these are all valid and important enough reasons to ensure your work is available to a wider audience, and not just when you’re dead, but now?
So think about your photos for a moment.
Where is your photo archive right now, and who knows how to access it?
